I was born in Milan. After studies in foreign languages (English and French) I began my career in Cinematography. Ten years working within camera crews as focus puller and camera operator (Bernardo Bertolucci: “The Dreamers” and “Besieged”, Uli Edel: “Julius Caesar”, Ricky Tognazzi: “Canone Inverso”), was soon followed by my launch as Director of Photography.
As a Director of Photography, I’ve filmed for the following talented Directors: Keith Rose, Dave Meyers, Olivier Venturini, Andy Morahan, Ray Kay, Howard Greenhalgh, Rupert Wainwright, Thed Lenseen, Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg, Jonathan Gurvit, Alain Gourrier, Bruno Decharme, Graham Rose, Ben Hartenstein, Spendser, Des Mullan, Siraj Jhaveri, Jimmy Diebold, Roar Uthaug, Eric Steinman, Ron Eichhorn, Simon Cracknell, Andreas Frølich, Antti J.
